The Nevada State Athletic Commission informed new WBO and WBC junior middleweight titleholder Sebastian Fundora on Tuesday that he is physically suspended from fighting until late September.

Fundora (21-1-1, 13 KOs) suffered a broken nose during the first round of his surprise split decision victory over then-unbeaten WBO titleholder Tim Tszyu of Australia in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Immediately after Fundora's upset victory, the WBO informed his team that the fighter would be allowed until April 25 to negotiate a title defense against mandatory "super" challenger Terence Crawford (40-0, 31 KOs), the recently undisputed welterweight champion. As part of the order, Fundora would be required to defend against Crawford within six months of Saturday's fight with Tszyu.

In a text message Tuesday night, a WBO official explained to Boxing Scene its order to Fundora:

“When a WBO champion suffers an injury, the Championship Committee issues a letter titled 'Interim Medical Certification' whereby the fighter through his representative(s) is required to submit in writing to the WBO a detailed medical report of his injury and his physician’s findings and prognosis, including his recovery time period. 

Upon receipt of such evidence, the Committee shall determine the next course of action per our governing regulations.”

The Nevada commission's decision obviously compromises the WBO's order.

A boxing official told Boxing Scene on Tuesday that Fundora will most likely not even begin training until the conclusion of his Nevada suspension on Sept. 27.

Under those terms, Fundora isn't likely to fight again until December.

The Nevada commission's decision also throws into chaos the plans of other possible opponents, including Tszyu and former welterweight champion Errol Spence, each of whom expressed interest in fighting Fundora next.
